This meal is about more than just eating food. It’s about building a community of people who can enjoy each other’s company. Come and join us every second and fifth Thursday of the month!
First Baptist Church has partnered with the Buttery Shelf to provide a free community hot lunch every second and fifth Thursday of the month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at First Baptist Church (Directions).
This meal is about more than just eating food. It’s about building a community of people who can enjoy each other’s company. Come and join us every second and fifth Thursday of the month! Everyone is invited!
Our choir joined with choirs from churches all over Lafayette to worship together at Music of The Faiths!
First Baptist Church has been a long time participant in LUM Jubilee Christmas. The church helps provide presents, gift cards, and food to families in need from our community. The parents come and pick out the presents for their kids from what we have gathered, receive the gift cards and food, and are able to present them to their family themselves.
If you would like to help we are accepting donations of gifts, monetary donations, and items for wrapping presents. You can drop off your donation at the church office during regular office hours (9:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday-Friday). If you would like to volunteer to help on the day of Jubilee Christmas you can contact the church office: (765) 742-5223.
Here are a few pictures from last year:
